title PHIDIAS : Integrating CAD Graphics into Dynamic Hypertext
source Hypertext : Concepts, System and Applications, Proceedings of the European Conference on Hypertext, ECHT'90. Cambridge University Press., 1990. pp. 152-165 : ill. includes bibliography
summary PHIDIAS is a hypermedia system for supporting environmental design. It embodies a theory of design as continual alternation between two complementary activities: construction of solution form and argumentation about construction. To support these activities it implements a number of advanced hypermedia concepts. These include an applicative query language providing search by both structure and content, virtual structures, composite graphic notes, query-based graphic clustering, and 'triggered' queries which connect construction acts to relevant sections of the argumentive network. PHIDIAS constitutes a new type of integrated information environment design
